Melvin L. Weaver

Melvin Leroy Weaver, 57, of Lancaster, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 6, 2015 at the Mount Joy Hospice Center surrounded by family and friends following an extended and courageous battle with multiple cancers.

He was born in Lewistown, PA to Lowell Weaver and the late Rachel Brackbill Weaver. He was a 1975 graduate of Conestoga Valley High School.

He enjoyed a well-timed punch line, dining in good company, collecting treasures, and sharing his stories in a way that transported the listener.

He is survived by his father, Lowell Weaver, two brothers, three sisters, four nephews, and three nieces, all of whom will keep his stories alive.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend a Memorial Service at Faith EC Church, 2124 Old Philadelphia Pike Lancaster 17602, on Friday, January 16 beginning with visitation at 3 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to the Mount Joy Hospice Center.

  • Mel, you truly were like a brother to me. we shared life at it’s best and at it’s worst and you made both aspects of my life so much better!

    We shared mutual support in 12-step groups. You also were one of the few people that came to visit me and my family. You taught us a lot about life and you help m
    us to live a more fearless lives.

    You taught me how to swim in the deep end at the Reading Y pool. It’s amazing what having another’s patience and attentiveness can mean in big things and in small!

    My daughter worked at the same hospice where you lived. She said you were such a nice considerate patient. I bet she wished that all her patients were like you!

    One weekend when I stayed at your apartment you helped me to compose a request for a Domestic Relations Modification that got accepted by the judge It made my life as a single father with multiple handicaps much more bearable!

    I can’t thank you enough for all the Christian love, peace, and wisdom you brought to me and my family!

    I am seriously looking forward to the day we will meet again, Brother in Christ!

  • I met Mel while working at Case New Holland and we often had lunch together. He was a good story teller and made everyone laugh.
    The first year he was there he gave me a homemade Christmas CD that we still listen to. I felt that was a very thoughtful gift.
    Mel was a special person and will be missed.

  • My deepest sympathy to the family. I worked with Mel at Case New Holland. He was such a special person and I had the privilege of getting to know him. He became a valued friend and brightened days even when he wasnt feeling well.
    I will miss him but I know that he is no longer suffering.
